After installing Windows 7 on my PC, I have found that streaming video, such as youtube videos, constantly buffers ever 3 seconds or so by Windows Media Player. I want to play streaming videos on windows 7 system smoothly.
I think most video players need more buffer. You need to change buffer setting in Media Player. Below is how to do:
1. First run Windows Media Player in Win7.
2. In its menu, click the View --> Options.
3. Then click Streaming Media On the Advanced tab and Click Change to alter the buffer settings.
After you finish, it will be playing streaming videos quickly.
